Currently {vol.36}

 This Currently series is just a regular, every day post about what is going on in my regular every day life that day.

Hello Friends! Happy Monday!  Today's Currently photo above was taken this evening when I was picking up my kids from daycare. It was such a beautiful sunset, I wanted to document it!

Thinking: About what to do with Freddy our Elf tonight. This was last nights debut...  there was a trail of marshmallows from the front door too! 

Planning: To build shelves similar to the photo below in my son's room. I am so excited for his room update. I bought bedding this week from Target & moved his room around! 
Learning: About how to make roller ball mixtures with my essential oils this week! I love buying oils at a wholesale cost. Let me know if you would like to learn more!

Reading: The Nesting Place by the Nester. It is incredible! It is way more than just about decorating your home, it is encouraging in so many other ways! I just finished Chapter 2 and my favorite quote so far is: "Life doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful!" I am going to paint this quote on my bathroom wall! It definitely spoke to me!

Excited about: My first Lindsay Letters print! I can't wait to get it! I bought it from her 15% off Cyber Monday deal!

Loving: The twinkles in my children's eyes seeing Santa for the first time this year! They were so excited to give Santa their lists. My favorite part of their lists included Amelia's wish for 2 pepperoni pizzas! ha She is a hoot!

Thankful for: A wonderful Thanksgiving with my wonderful husband & 2 beautiful children. Our bellies & hearts were full!

Missing: My Aunt Nan. It has been 3 years since she has been gone and it feels like just yesterday. I miss her so much, though I constantly feel her presence around me.  She has been an inspiration to me my entire life. She will continue to do so for the rest of my life.

My favorite Quote of the Day: Life doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful!

Thanks for reading & I hope you enjoyed learning about a little bit of randomness about me! Have a wonderful week!


  1. What a wonderful quote! I think I need to write that down to remind myself :)

    I'm glad you all had a good Thanksgiving!

    1. yes, it's a great one! Thank you! Have a great weekend Suzanna!

  2. I love doTERRA! Trying them was definitely a life changer.

  3. Your aunt looks so young in those photos, so sorry you are missing her... it is always harder during the holidays. My kids are going to see Santa on Thursday, I can't wait. That print is beautiful.

    1. She was 43and died of Cystic Fibrosis. I miss her terribly, but know she is always with me.
      Have a great weekend Carrie!
